free money? yes, please!

*Giveaway Closed (I'll announce the winner on Tuesday)*

I'm not sure about you, but I've been in the Christmas gift planning mode for ... a while now (okay, yes, I've been planning since Sept.).
I've been running ideas through my head with different gift options for our loved ones, trying to figure out the best gift for each person and how to give the most love for the least amount of money. Should I make them something? Shop sales? Hmmm. 
I've rewritten my mental list soooo many times already (come to think of it, it might actually help to write it down. Then I'd know if I've come up with the same idea twice ... or three times).

Anyway, all that to say, I'd love to have a little free money. Or, while we're at it, a lot of free money.
There's very little chance that any will come my way, but it might come yours! Oh yeah? Yeah.

But first, have you heard of CSN Stores? I heard about it a while ago through my various internet wanderings, and it is quite amazing. 
CSN Stores is made up of over 200 online stores, selling everything from children's backpacks (I've been thinking about getting one for Emma - how cute would it be for her to carry it as the diaper bag?!) to cookware to home furnishings to, well, you name it.

That all brings us to this piece of news - the folks at CSN Stores are very generously sponsoring a giveaway here!!!
They are offering the lucky winner a FREE $25 gift code, valid at any of their online stores!!! How nice is that?!

Giveaway guidelines:
-The giveaway is only open to my U.S. and Canadian readers since CSN Stores ships only to the US and Canada. International shipping charges may apply for Canadian addresses.
-You can have as many chances to win as you'd like (see below).
-Giveaway closes on Monday, November 22nd and the winner will be chosen randomly. I can't enter since I'm hosting it. (bummer. but that means you have a better chance!)

For Chance #1: Just be a follower of the blog. It is kind of the point of the giveaway in the first place :) Leave a comment letting me know that you follow along. If you've been reading in silence for a long time, this is your chance to finally say hi!

For Chance #2: Leave a comment telling me what your Christmas list includes. Are you making most of the things? Shopping sales? Buying their favorite perfume? I need ideas!

For Chance #3 (and more): Share the news! Let others know about the giveaway by blogging and/or posting on your favorite social media. Let as many people know about as you can! Because we could all use a bit of free money, right? Each time you post about the giveaway come back here and leave a comment for an additional entry. :)

I'll announce the winner on the 23rd and am looking forward to reading your comments!

And . . . this year, I'm knitting fingerless gloves for my sisters-in-law, and hiring my uncle make a doll bunk bed for my nieces (on the other side. But we'll be doing some purchasing, too.

Oh boy. You've come to the wrong girl for Christmas inspiration. I am so far behind! I have clothes on the list for my oldest kids, books and games for my youngest, and no ideas at all for the grandparents!

We are having the kids decorate small tote bags with iron transfers and fabric markers. Then we are filling them with some goodies for our loved ones. The main thing being some apple jelly we just made after gathering apples from a friend's orchard!

This is pretty neat stuff and I definitely could use the money or gifts as well. It's especially tight this Christmas and I have a rather large family. :P Count me in! :)

I am actually done with christmas shopping! Yay for being organized this year! I only have a few things left to do but since they will be freshly baked gifts, they will happen closer to Christmas itself!

My Christmas list is a mixture of handmade items and black friday sales on toys for my children and nieces. I am making baskets filled with handmade kitchen towels, cookie mix jars, and oven mitts for our aunts and uncles.

My Christmas list has Sephora's antibacterial brush set (Sparkle edition) on it, and I can't say what else because my family reads this blog and the secret would be out.
